The comfort and originality of the interior also depend on choosing the right carpet. The tapestry gives extra comfort to the room. When the children are playing on the floor, or when you stand with your bare feet on the soft carpet next to the bed in the morning, you enjoy the warmth and coziness of your home. Until the moment when the cleaning comes.
To keep it looking like new for a long time, you need to know how to care for them, how to vacuum them and how to keep them from discoloring. Don’t hesitate to have them professionally cleaned when necessary, but as long as it’s not a large area of carpet or some tough stains, we can usually clean them more quickly and efficiently at home. In velvety warm or rich woolen carpets, there is a lot of worrying hidden, so proper carpet maintenance is one of the key things for the health of the family. Read how to clean the carpet and how regular carpet cleaning extends its life.
In order for the tapestry to stay clean as long as possible, regular maintenance is important, which primarily includes regular vacuuming. In case you notice any stain, it is important to remove it immediately and not let it dry because then it will be more difficult. However, vacuuming is not enough, because the vacuum cleaner cannot pick up the hairs that seem to stick to the carpet. In this case, it is good to take a wet brush and gently go along the rug. Another thing you can do is to clean and disinfect all floor surfaces with a steam cleaner or similar. Of course, this cannot replace deep cleaning, i.e. machine washing.
Carpet washing machines are powerful machines that wash under high pressure. When washing, special cleaning agents and fragrances are used. After washing, the carpets are dried, or at least drained in special machines. The entire process of washing and drying does not take long and you can usually pick up the carpets within two or three days.
Carpet cleaning services look like this: First, the carpets are soaked with cold water, after which the treatment with special brushes and chemicals begins. The choice of brushes and cleaning agents is chosen depending on the material from which the carpet is made. If the carpet is extremely dirty, the procedure is repeated several times. After treatment, it’s time for the centrifuge, which, thanks to its power and a high number of revolutions, dries the carpet by up to 95%.
During the operation of this machine, not only is it drained, but also clean water is added and the carpet is completely rinsed to a clear drop. After the centrifuge, the carpets are placed in special drying chambers that are equipped with systems for blowing out and eliminating moisture. The chamber is programmed and completely dries the carpets regardless of weather conditions and seasons.
After this treatment, the carpet is ready to decorate your home again. This type of service is usually charged by the size of the carpet, and many companies come and deliver personally to the address.
If you think this service is expensive, you can always choose to do all the work yourself. Spread the nylon and lay the carpet on it. Prepare the water hose, wet the carpet well, and start rubbing. What we have to say is that this is a rather long-term process, because it is very difficult to get the foam from the cleaning agent out of the fabric, as well as to drain the carpet itself. If you thought that was all, it’s not. Now you have to find a place where you will hang your carpet to dry. Drying can be long-term, in the best case you will wait at least three or four days. Pay attention that it does not remain damp anywhere, because if you spread it like that, you will very quickly start to smell an unpleasant smell in the house.
If you deep clean the carpet yourself, use only maintenance products with a value of ph7 (neutral). To make sure that the agent is suitable, it should be placed on a saucer and placed on a radiator to dry. After 24 hours, you should check if there is any grease left – if it is, then the product is not suitable and should not be used for carpet cleaning. You will agree that the better solution is to pay for machine washing, right?
